課程概述 Course Description

This course offers an overview of pragmatics which is concerned with “the study of meaning as communicated by a speaker (or writer) and interpreted by a listener (or reader)” (Yule, 2008, p. 3). The course content covers theories and application relevant to foreign language education, along with empirical studies on speech acts showing that words can be used not only to present information but also to carry out, if not perform, actions. Students will be fostered to put pragmatic theories into practice in EFL contexts on one hand and explore research interests for their thesis on the other.
